Greg Drobny gives a great no-nonsense look at some of the myths surrounding the second amendment.
If there’s one area in political thought that is an immediate indicator of where people stand when it comes to their view of government and individual freedom, it’s the subject of the Second Amendment. What it meant then, what it means now, and how people interpret those definitions offers somewhat of a demarcation line regarding people’s relationship to the government.
What passes for political discourse on this subject is usually marred by flawed terminology and horribly illogical thought. As one of the hot-button topics of our day, I think it’s important to give our characteristic, Unapologetically American take on the subject by answering some of the more popular ideas proposed by gun control advocates.
Myth #1: “The Second Amendment was only intended for those serving in the National Guard or state-sponsored militia; not for individuals.”
Myth #2: “If everyone had guns it would be like the Wild West!!!”
Myth #3: “School shootings have gotten worse because of looser gun laws.”
Myth #4: “Look at all these countries with stricter gun control. They’re so much safer!”
Myth #5: “All we are looking for is ‘reasonable’ gun control that any ‘reasonable’ person would see as common sense.”
